Paul Begala calls Rush Limbaugh “corpulent drug addict”

Newsbusters reports with video:

CNN’s Paul Begala, in response to Friday’s announcement that former Maryland governor Michael Steele had been named Republican National Committee chairman, said, “The real leader of the Republican Party in America today is a corpulent drug addict with an AM radio talk show, Rush Limbaugh.”

And what does that make the leader of the democratic party, I wonder?  Here’s an interesting and quite funny video of some prominent democrats, including Barack Obama, falling all over themselves to tell us all about their drug use.

Mr. Begala also added:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is “very bitter, and divisive,” “Obama is stylistically much more like Reagan,” and that George W. Bush was a “spectacularly lazy president.”

And how bitter and divisive is that?

But at least Gov. Sarah Palin and George W. Bush are public figures and in politics.  Rush Limbaugh is a private citizen practicing his profession, the one he has had now for about 20 years, and isn’t it a bit of a stretch to elevate him to the level of the “leader of the republican party?”

Michael Steele to head Republican Party

Republicans

The Republican Party chose the first black national chairman in its history Friday, just shy of three months after the nation elected a Democrat as the first African-American president. The choice marked no less than “the dawn of a new party,” declared the new GOP chairman, former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele.

Uh – who is this Rush Limbaugh that President Obama keeps talking about?
